Rural Living Day

Rural Living Day is an exciting annual event, typically the first Saturday in April, hosted by the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and Waldo County Extension Association. All proceeds support a post-secondary scholarship for a Waldo County high school senior.

A wide variety of workshops are offered each year by Extension staff and community volunteers on topics ranging from gardening, homesteading and alternative energy to food preservation, cooking, livestock and so much more.
